Well its that time of the year again for TheMailMan. Daddy needs a new toy. Only this year my choices are great and my wallet is small. So what should I do? 1. Get a Phenom II X6. Pros: -Its a six core! -Six core would help me with Photoshop which I make a living with. -It will OC to 3.6 by default using "turbo" for single threaded applications. -I could sell my 955 for 120 and get the x6 for 170! Cons: -Its the FIRST AMD six core for desktop. -Other than Photoshop I don't really have a use for more than 3 cores. -I already have a 955. -I'm running DDR2 2. Get another 5850. Pros: -Its a 5850 for f@#k sake. -I already have one and a second would bring me crossfire bliss. -I have an open PCI-E slot thats lonely. Cons: -Its 300 bones! -A single 5850 is overkill for most games and crossfire isn't always supported. -The cost of two 5850s put me in 5970 range without 5970 performance. 3. Get a PS3. Pros: -The PS3 has a ton of games I have been dieing to play. -Plays Blu-Ray which I currently do not have. -The system is way cheaper than it used to be. -It would piss the wife off! Cons: -Game cost. 59 bucks for games that do not support dedicated servers. -I can get a Blu-Ray player for my PC a lot cheaper. -I play mostly FPS and this is a console. Nuff said. -This would be another system I would have to "support" in the house. -It would piss the wife off!
